3 New Ways to Dye Easter Eggs

These new methods are really fun.

You don’t need a lot of ingredients for this easy speckled design. Plus, there is minimal mess to clean up when you’re finished, and the eggs look great when you’re done. All you need is a bag of uncooked rice, food coloring, ziplock baggies, and, of course, some hard-boiled eggs. The rice will hold the food coloring, without absorbing it, and transfer it to the eggs. You can even go wild and mix different food colorings in your bag. Follow along in the video to see how it’s done!


We’ve seen this second method pop up all over social media this year — the shaving cream or cool whip method. This technique uses use delicious, heavy whipped cream instead of the shaving cream, but you should get the same results whether using cool whip or shaving cream. These eggs turned out looking pretty cool, but cleanup was a little more intensive.


The Kool-Aid method offers a fun alternative to traditional food coloring. It’s pretty cool that you can dye an egg with Kool-Aid, but keep in mind the mix might stain your fingers. Give it a try. It’s still pretty fun, and maybe you can come up with a cool result.

What do you do with all of your dyed eggs? Make deviled eggs, of course!
